Rafa says Wimbledon is for sure fastest court in the world.

During first few games of the Monfils/Djokovic USO QF match, Rafa was in the ESPN booth with Brad Gilbert and Chris Fowler. Rafa was asked if he thinks USO is the fastest court in the world. And Rafa quickly said it was Wimbledon which is the fastest then quickly said USO is probably the 2nd fastest.

Who agrees? i dont agree here with Rafa. I'm pretty sure USO is the fastest surface on the Tour.

Re: Rafa says Wimbledon is for sure fastest court in the world.

Rafa was joking or i really don´t get it why he said so. Everyone knows about Wimbledon grass- that they changed it and we can see during matches how slow it is. But US open isn´t the fastest surface- yes it is fastest GS tournament but they are some syntetic hard court which are faster -

there is link to official page about classification of surfaces and thera are some indoor tournaments with faster surfaces - probably Marseille is faster and few others.

I'm sure MTF posters know more about court surface speed than the guy who is actually playing on it.

I doubt if Rafael is joking. From my experience, close to 100% of what this guy ever says in public are objective truths.

Tennis has Great Games & Great Personalities.

We also have Andy Murray.

Re: Rafa says Wimbledon is for sure fastest court in the world.

Johnny Mac has said in the past he felt the US Open was now faster, and he has certainly hit on both even now. And we all know from other threads that whatever JMac says is the absolute truth...

Re: Rafa says Wimbledon is for sure fastest court in the world.

"It could get into my mind. I could start thinking, 'I can't play against this guy, his game doesn't suit me'. I could start accepting the fact that I have been losing against him, but that would be a bad thing for me to do."]
-- Roger Federer on Rafael Nadal.

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

So we believe Rafa who says it's the fastest but not the other players saying it's slower ?

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Players have opinions too. Just because they play the game doesn't mean they can't be wrong.

Re: Rafa says Wimbledon is for sure fastest court in the world.

The most important thing to take away from this is not the part Nadal said about the surfaces, it was the fact that he was on during the Nole match and I didn't get to see him...
